On May 19, 2018, the inaugural 1993 Coyote Baseball Team was inducted into the Cerro Coso Athletic Hall of Fame. This team represents the starting point of the Coyote baseball program which just completed its 25th season.
“This group is recognized for laying the foundation for which the program stands, and we were honored to have representatives from the original team attend the ceremony alongside their former coaches, Dick Adams and Dave Navarro,” said Athletic Director and former Coyote baseball player John McHenry.
It was an event filled with emotion and memories of the glory days as the 1993 team reunited alongside baseball alumni from following years on the Cerro Coso campus. Hosted by the Cerro Coso Coyote Club, the focus of the night was recognizing athletic achievement in the Indian Wells Valley while enshrining former Coyotes into the College’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Award recipients for the 2018 event included: Burroughs High School Boys Varsity Football Team, Burroughs High School Girls Varsity Tennis Team, California City High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team, IWV Youth Baseball Sidewinder (Pony Division) Baseball Team, 5th Grade League Champions Gateway Elementary School 5th Grade Girls Basketball Team, and the Gateway Elementary School 5th Grade Boys Basketball Team. Our congratulations to all award recipients!
